LG looks to be developing a new foldable display for in-car entertainment. The patent was submitted to the World Intellectual Property Organization by the South Korean behemoth (WIPO). It’s possible that the corporation is employing the same technology that is used for LG’s smart TVs and rollable phones.
The dashboard’s display panel extends from the back to reveal a bigger screen. Depending on the resolution, the design creates the appearance that the panel can display content both folded and unfolded. Furthermore, when the display is open, the size of the display doubles. LG is most likely utilising technologies from its renowned roll-up smart TVs. LG had teased a rollable smartphone earlier this year, however, after hyping the flexible screen phone, the company chose to wind down its smartphone business.
The flexible design of the foldable infotainment screen should save space on the car’s dashboard and also provide (somewhat) eye protection when technically not in use. Unfortunately, the patent description does not reveal the technical details, such as panel dimensions, usage scenarios, panel compatibility, etc.
However, we’re interested to see where LG goes from here since it’s a promising start for LG’s goods. various classifications LG is also working on a rollable in-flight entertainment screen. At the time, though, nothing is known about this.
